Top-notch espresso and delicious vegan date bars. (Wish they had vegan breakfast items too.) Pleasant ambience and charmingly eclectic space. Has welcoming sidewalk tables as well right in the heart of downtown.

Arguably the best coffee in Nelson! Why? It’s a local haunt, the staff are friendly, the Baristas are excellent,,, and they use great beans:-) “Origin” Organic Coffee, roasted on Granville Island by a group committed to the art, culture, and science of coffee. Can’t stop in Nelson without this experience.

We stopped in here for an almond chai to take a break from shopping on Baker St. It’s a nice little coffee shop with a selection of beverages and treats. There isn’t a lot of seating so we nearly had to take our drinks to go. The chai was pretty good - nothing amazing about it but nothing wrong with it either!

Stopped in for a Chai Latte, Service was great, nice and friendly.

Had a date square as well that was tasty.

A bit pricey but aren’t they all.

I would return on my next visit.

Had a really cool industrial/wood chic to it on the inside and was on the main drag so we popped in for something cold. We ordered two frappes from their "summer drinks" board, kinda expected a coffee place to "make" these drinks, not pour them from a machine. Just would've appreciated being made aware of that by staff saying something like, "our frappes are pre-made in a machine, if you don't want that, we could make your something else". I'm sure their coffee is great like reviewers said, but we couldn't tell from pre-made coffee slushees.
